Bronze Stars are items similar to Power Stars that Mario can get only in Super Mario Galaxy 2. They are almost exactly the same as normal Power Stars, except that they are bronze instead of gold and are depicted as being dull and rusty. They appear only if Mario asks the Cosmic Spirit to activate the Cosmic Guide mode. If this happens, the Power Star immediately becomes a Bronze Star. The Bronze Stars still add to the Power Star count, but if the player wishes to get a regular Power Star, they have to play through the level without the help of the Cosmic Spirit. However, even though Bronze Stars are counted as part of the player's Star total, they must not have any Bronze Stars in order to unlock Grandmaster Galaxy. Bronze Prankster Comet Stars can be found only in World S, while only one Bronze Grand Star exists in the entire game, in Bowser Jr.'s Fiery Flotilla.
